I was watching a fascinating interview with hedge fund superstar (and all-around brilliant guy) David Shaw (of D.E. Shaw & Co.) today on Bloomberg TV, when it suddenly came to me: Shaw looks like someone I know … but who is it?
And then I realized who it was. Shaw is a ringer for fellow brilliant guy (and my friend) Tim O’Reilly, of Web 2.0, O’Reilly books, and technology conferences fame. Separated at birth? One wonders.
